Barbecued pork sandwiches are so easily made in the slow cooker, and pulled pork is an excellent choice for a crowd.

A little honey and a dash of cayenne pepper add flavor to the purchased barbecue sauce.


  • 1 boneless pork shoulder roast (about 2 1/2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) barbecue sauce
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons honey
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 8 sandwich rolls
  • Optional: cole slaw

Steps to Make It

Place pork shoulder roast in a lightly greased 3 1/2 to 5-quart slow cooker.

Combine onion, barbecue sauce, honey, and hot pepper; pour over roast.

Cover and cook on LOW setting for 7 to 9 hours.

Serve on buns, topped with slaw if desired.
